Linux mint 7 USB install not working

Postby nevar27 on Wed Jun 24, 2009 10:00 am

I have a dell inspiron 1501 amd style with vista. I use linux 6 on a thumb drive. THe boot cd works fine. Perfect. The Linux 7 install (USB flavour) seemed to go well however it stops and says Modprobe: FATAL: Could not load /lib/modules/2.6.28-11-generic/modules.dep: No such file or directory. BusyBox v1.10.2 (Ubuntu 1:2.20.2-2ubuntu7) built-in shell (ash)
promt is (initramsfds)

Now i installed it with USB-creator a few times. Then installed it with the install icon on the desk top. All installs lead to above said error, however the cd works flawless...

Memory stick is PNY Polaroild 2g thumb drive.

Thank you. If i missed a thread about above problem i apologize.

I have this same problem, Inspiron 1501 AMD, Gloria boots from CD but not USB drive (two different USBs), weird.

Here's some shots:

I get a similar problem, where when I try booting my usb key I get a message that reads, "boot error", and that's it. No go.

Does anybody know how to get Mint going after the initramfs command? Is it possible?
